Achdut Recalls Multiple Brands of Tahini - Rhode Island Health & Fitness Magazine
The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that the company Achdut is recalling its Tahini products of all packages and sizes produced from April 7, 2018 to May 21, 2018 because they may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
